12:04am
fire. police say they are not cooperating. >> we know for a fact that there are a lot of witnesses who saw what happened and who were asking that the public help us identify who did this. >> inside the store you can see the feet of a toddler who is being held by his father talking to another man. moments before the shooting, the father and son were standing right here, and just after they walked out and into the parking lot, the shooting began. hirum lawrence who turns 2 in december was shot in the head and his father shot in the hand while holding him. >> we are just praying and keeping my nephew in our prayers. it is a sad thing. >> police say hirum's grand mother drove the boy and his father to children's hospital oakland in this cadillac suv. five other injured people were driven by private vehicles to highland hopts. in all, police say more than 50 bullets were fired, and that doesn't include these two copper jacketed slugs

12:07am
here. >> did not represent our needs for a new location to expand to. and it kind of took away our initiative in the whole process. >> tonight protesters had already packed up and thought they would be out of justin herman plays -- plaza reassembled their tents for another night here. >> it screwed up my whole day. hurry up and wait and then not to leave in the end. i sat here every day thinking i was going to leave. i kept waiting for the truck to show up. >> all of the news stuff in the last day. >> at the general assembly, a liaison with the city told the crowd that san francisco wanted an agreement in the morning and that the group would leave justin herman plaza. wednesday would be a day to look over the logistics of the new location in the mission district, and thursday is a day they would help move. >> what i would like to do is move over to the other side and then come back here and defend my medical tent on the

12:09am
stay here and risk possible arrest. john alston, abc news. >> thank you. the city of oakland is allowing occupy protestors to put up a tee pea in front of the plaza. every time they tried to put it up police folded it back up. then they issued a 3-day permit requiring the tee pea be taken down, and then no one sleeps in it. they will hold an around the clock vigil at the plaza. and occupy protesters are occupying the port of oakland. the group says it will shut down, quote, wall street on the waterfront on december 12th. remember these pictures? they held a general strike that closed the oakland for hours. port officials say they will not allow unlawful demonstrations and are working on a plan to keep the port open. a vallejo police officer who died in the line of duty will be remembered tomorrow at the high school where he coached. he coached the girl's basketball team at vallejo high school. a service will be held there

people. six-year-old torres swraw mora was killed as she walked in the crosswalk of bay road and gloria way. there have been several accidents at that intersection, but not enough to meet state requirements to put up a stot sign. as lisa amin gulezian reports, the city is taking action on their own. >> it takes a second or two to injure or kill a child or a person. >> at tonight's east palo alto city council meeting, the talk was on traffic safety, but the foe cause was on zamora, the little girl who was fatally killed while crossing the street at bay road and gloria way. since then, the community has demanded change come to this intersection where this year alone another little boy was hit in the same crosswalk. a bicyclist and car collided and a head on crash happened. residents say a stop sign is the answer. >> there is a necessity for
12:15am
the stop sign. >> but the state guidelines require five collisions to take place within a 12-month period to justify installing a stop sign. at bay and gloria there have been four. tonight the city engineer recommended installing flashing led lights. the school crossing signage, high visibility crosswalks, yield signs and no parking signs north of the intersection. >> still think that on top of those improvements the stop signs would help. >> puting a stop sign there for now makes sense. >> the city can create their own guidelines. tonight the council voted 4-1 to adopt the improvements while continuing to wrork -- to work on a stop sign plan. >> the transportation commission will now review whether stop signs are necessary in that area. if it decides they are, members will write up an ordinance which the council will vote on next month. in east palo alto, lisa amin gulezian, abc7 news.

clear away as this cold front brings the colder air from the upper layers of the atmosphere and down near the surface. there is not much moisture to deal with. but the higher pressure builds in and it will create gusty northeasterly winds, and that's why we are concerned particularly late tomorrow afternoon and into tomorrow night. that's when we are expecting the strongest winds in the bay area. in the morning, you will need extra time for that morning drive. the upper 30s in the inland east bay and the north bay valleys, so getting chilly out there. you will need a sweater and jacket and areas of dense fog. most other areas will be in the 40s. tomorrow afternoon, the wind picks up, but the temperatures also rise in response. sunny skies and the fog will get scoured out by the wind. 66 degrees in santa rosa. 63 in san francisco, richmond, fremont antioch. palo alto, mid60s along with half moon bay. and a sunny afternoon for the monterey bay. look at these temperatures. really mild as we head toward december. 72 in santa cruz. 73 in monterey and
